The IDF says it’s deploying reinforcements to the West Bank after US President Donald Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital، as the Times of Israel said.
“Upon the conclusion of the general staff’s situation assessment، it was decided that a number of battalions will serve as reinforcements in the area of (the West Bank)، as well as combat intelligence and territorial defense،” the military says in a statement.
“In addition، more standby forces were defined، as part of the (military’s) readiness for possible developments.”
The army would not specify the number of additional battalions being sent to the West Bank as reinforcements.
As of Thursday morning، there has not been any callup of reserve units.
